2008 Saturn Vue A/C whining noise

Asked by Apr 30, 2017 at 10:43 PM about the 2008 Saturn VUE XE V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The A/C has started making a whining noise when driving.  It is very loud and
annoying.  It does not stop if I turn the A/C off.  It only stops when the car is
turned off for awhile.  If I do not turn on the A/C, the noise does not start.

Is it a screeching, like a belt noise? Does it blow cold air from the vents, as expected, while this noise in occurring? How old are the accessory belt(s)? Have you checked under the hood to get a visual on the source of the noise?
